what am I doing?

It has [only] been fourteen days since my last post! Wow. I surprise even myself. So… what the hell have I been doing? I’ll tell you… even though you didn’t ask. I promise it will be super interesting. And then I will break that promise… because it won’t be.

Here’s what/where/who I’ve been…

Nemo. No, I’m just kidding. You know what I actually found? Waldo! I mean it. I found the real life Waldo. I was innocently driving along when, on the side of the road, I spotted a man wearing a red and white striped shirt. I think I scared the shit out of my daughter when I yelled, “I found Waldo!

Oh, how could I forget? I also found two stowaways on the back of a car in a random parking lot.

Rhode Island. I like to call it visiting my summer vacation home. That makes me feel better about my life choices.

Blueberry Crisp. Mom took us to the place Grandma used to take us to pick blueberries. We filled a bucket. Also… sad pickles.

Well, coffee, obviously. But when in Rhode Island… I’m having the best treat on earth.

My life is fucked up.‘ But that’s old news.

The Daily Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers. My favorite late night crew. And Archer.

Not much. It’s fucking hot. Try to control your excitement as I am not posting pics of this one.

There’s a song… I just can’t stop. I don’t know if it’s considered ‘pop‘ (which goes against everything I believe in… blah… blah… I’ve said it a hundred times…). I guess it might be since it’s on pop radio. But then again, so are lots of artists not considered pop. Anyway, I don’t give a damn what it is or what anyone thinks. This song is amazing, and I love it. Add coolness points because the kid’s dad was Doctor Who.

I’m sharing the video… but this is the lyric video. If you want to see the official/original (starring famous dad Peter Capaldi), go for it, but prepare to weep.

I’m going under, and this time, I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal, somebody to know
Somebody to have, somebody to hold
It’s easy to say, but it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain

Now the day bleeds into nightfall
And you’re not here to get me through it all
I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

[partial lyrics | Someone You Loved – Lewis Capaldi]

p.s.— Seriously, I have had that song on repeat for, like, two hours. I am not ashamed.

p.s. 2— I miss you.

  1. Well, that wasn’t boring it all. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So, is that lemonade or lemon ice?
